Histoire et technologies: donner vie à l'histoire ou la pervertir?

Autant comme professeur que comme commentateur, je suis bien souvent émerveillé par ce que nous apporte le développement technologique. Cet article du Washington Post présente quelques avenues pour contribuer à "donner vie" à l'histoire. Si les perspectives sont souvent emballantes, elles s'accompagnent également de considérations éthiques.

 "Denbo, who has a doctorate in history from the University of Warwick in England, compares the potential of digital history to the enormous popularity of video games, such as the historically accurate blockbuster Assassin’s Creed. “The appeal isn’t just the excitement of playing the game, it’s also getting an idea of what these historical spaces and experiences were like for people in the past,” he said.

Enthusiasts say technology allows students — and customers — to tap into the feelings behind the facts. A colorized photo of a frightened little girl in Auschwitz makes her less like an archived shadow and more like children we see every day. It is easier to comprehend how Henry V spurred his outnumbered troops into battle by hearing his exhortations rather than just reading them.""
